Sandy Creek Nature Center reviews
Very cool place! The kids really enjoy it! There are many cool things to do at the Nature Center. They have a little educational hike that you can take the kids on and many little educational stations for them to learn about the different regions of Georgia. My kids went here as a part a field trip for a summer camp, but I think it would even be fun to come to when its just you and your kids!
Sandy creek nature center is very appreciated and loved by our family. This is such a wonderful place for kids. Always so clean, and nice employees and volunteers. Thank you for all that you do.
